Skywatch Friday
July 27th, 2012

Yesterday's skies in the Similkameen

After a beautiful quiet morning when I picked all the ripe raspberries and then went out for lunch - warning skies to the North

Large thunderheads in the West that resulted in great claps of thunder and a passing storm

The evening skies had a lovely glow and off to the North East the end of a faint rainbow

Bent across the sky almost directly above the town, it ended brilliantly half way up the Dragon's Toe

Eventually it brightened at the other end, but I was never able to get a complete picture as it arched across the valley.

In the West the skies caught fire and cast a most glorious light on the town

which eventually calmed down as dusk descended upon us.

I was thrilled, - we miss so many beautiful skies nestled here amongst the trees and houses in town.

For more great skies visit here at Skywatch Friday.
